§ MR. T. LOUGH
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is now in a position to say what step has been taken towards carrying out the recommendations of the Cab Committee, especially with regard to the appointment of an inspector with technical knowledge in each of the 21 police districts of London, the abolition of the privilege system at the railway stations, the abolition of the Hackney Carriage Tax, the transfer of the cab shelters to a public authority, and the extension of the cab radius throughout the Metropolis?
§ MR. ASQUITH
I must refer my hon. Friend, for the present, to my answer of last Friday, on the same subject, to the hon. Member for Paddington. The scheme which I then mentioned is now almost complete.
